General Information

Description - This information was provided by www.mostateparks.com

The role that both rivers played in the Lewis and Clark Expedition and the history of the rivers are interpreted at the park in outdoor exhibits. A short interpretive trail takes visitors to the confluence point. Restoration of a natural floodplain, which will emphasize native vegetation and natural wetlands suitable for the site's current soil, topography and hydrology, is planned for the 1,118-acre park. This will include forests, prairies and marshes with abundant opportunity to preserve native plants. The park will provide opportunities for day-use activities such as nature study, river-related recreation and hiking. Interpretation on the river and the Lewis and Clark Expedition also will be provided. The park was opened to the public in 2004.

Attractions - The confluence point also provides an excellent place for bird watching as millions of birds migrate along the Mississippi River corridor each spring and fall, while others reside in the area. Visitors to the park can relax and enjoy the many species of songbirds, shore birds, wading birds, waterfowl and raptors as they watch the rivers flow by.

Recreation - bird watching, hiking
